Abstract

Present interest in land use planning is drawing attention to the necessity for land classification and mapping systems that will serve as a basis for rational land use decisions. Various programs and approaches to the inventory of wildlands throughout Canada are reviewed. An approach for dividing landscapes into ecologically significant units for forestry, wildlife, recreation and agricultural purposes is outlined.
